Healthy Lifestyle

Living a healthy and balanced life can be very challenging. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start and how to make changes that will help. There are many unreliable resources out there. We have tried to create a list of some trusted sources that may help bring about desired changes in your life- in physical activity, diet, illness prevention, sleep, mental and emotional health.

  • When the child enrolls in the next grade span (TK/K-6th grade, 7th-12th grade)

  • The expiration date specified in a temporary medical exemption

  • Revocation of the exemption because the issuing physician has been subject to disciplinary action from the physician’s licensing entity.
